Daniel Roman vs. Murodjon Akhmadaliev Ordered By The WBA

By Miguel Rivera

The World Boxing Association has ordered their super bantamweight champion Daniel Roman to make a mandatory defense against Murodjon Akhmadaliev in his next fight. has been advised that the WBA's Championships Committee has already issued out orders for the fight and communicated it to the champion's team in a letter signed by the president of the committee, Carlos Chavez.

Within the WBA's regulations, the champion has the duty of defending his crown against the mandatory contender every 9 months. The last time Roman made a mandatory defense was on June 16th of 2018, when he beat Mexican native Moises Flores. The deadline for a new defense expired on March 15th, days before Roman made his unification fight with IBF world champion TJ Doheny.

Akhmadaliev (6-0, 5 KOs) was in action last month, when he knocked out Carlos Carlson in three rounds.

Rule C.13 of the WBA states that the champion can't face any other boxer other than the mandatory within 60 days after the lapse for the mandatory fight expires.

Due to that fact, the WBA  has given a lapse of one month from this May 7th and until the end of June 6th for both parties to reach an agreement for the fight.

In the event that there is no agreement or any of those involved does not show interest in closing a deal, the WBA will have to call for a purse bid to define the terms of the fight.

Roman fought Doheny on the same Inglewood, California card where Akhmadaliev competed last. In a Fight of The Year candidate, Roman dropped Doheny twice on route to a twelve round majority decision win.

It's not a division lacking big fights. Don't need to insult those putting in their work and bypassing them. You gotta earn it in that division. Akmad can and will earn it. But not yet..
